Rob Reiner calls Trump “the new leader of the Confederacy” in “our continuing Civil War”

Wednesday, filmmaker and actor Rob Reiner tweeted:

Our original sin is at the the root of our continuing Civil War. Donald Trump, the new leader of the Confederacy, heads the Sedition. If he is not held accountable with a Senate conviction, there will be no Appomattox.

Reiner wrote a day earlier “Make no mistake. 45 Republican Senators chose White Supremacy, Sedition, and a deadly Insurrection to overthrow the United States Government over our Constitution and the Rule of Law. We will not forget.”

Senator Rand Paul had tweeted earlier:

The Senate just voted on my constitutional point of order.

45 Senators agreed that this sham of a “trial” is unconstitutional.

That is more than will be needed to acquit and to eventually end this partisan impeachment process.

This “trial” is dead on arrival in the Senate.
